COVID-19 is a new type coronavirus dangerous to humans more than typical strains of seasonal flu. The virus outbreak started late in 2019 in Chinese city of Wuhan. Since then the virus has spread globally to virtually all countries in the world. This wide spread infection is called pandemic. Individual countries have adopted own set of rules to slow down the infection rate and protect its citizens. Many countries have applied various forms of quarantines. Some have made it mandatory to wear facial mask or respirators. Various service providers and shop types have been allowed to run emergency mode or were completely or partially closed during this time.
Using plastic gloves is a practice adopted by many shops and service providers that remain open. The gloves are then safely disposed or disinfected and used again if possible. This protects the user from getting the virus on his/her hands.
